After a lot of planning, we went to New York and Niagara Falls. It was a very smooth trip. The hotels were just fabulous. It was more than expected. This was a trip my husband and I had planned for a very long time and it was perfect.
This trip was one magical dream come true for me. The best thing was that GoldenBus Tours covered everything in all details and gave us a memorable holiday to enjoy. We were a group of 4 people and the tour catered well to each of our needs and likes. This made our entire trip very smooth and free of stress. One thing I still think about, where would we go if we did not have these tickets and all our pre-bookings with GoldenBus Tours.
I wish I could give this 10 out of 5 stars. It is simply commendable and best tour of my life. I would love to prefer this company for future tour vacations.
It was a magnificently arranged tour to some of the sensational places on earth. I just loved every bit of it. We didn’t really miss anything. We made sure we saw everything there was to explore. GoldenBus Tours has certainly done a wonderful job arranging such detailed tours at these prices. I would love to take another tour with GoldenBusTours soon.
When my brother told me about this trip, I thought that 7 days are too much to visit such boring destinations. But, I was wrong. When I saw Toronto, Philadelphia and Niagara Falls, it really left me jaw dropped.
I am working in a busy area in the marketing and keep on pleasing others. Just took a break and boarded the bus for a 7 day tour. Thank God, I saw a new world, and loved visiting Montreal, Quebec, Boston, New York, and lots more.
New York City is getting full of the people, I mean there are so many people in the city, but the best thing is that we finally toured it because I was wondering why this city is so famous. The other thing I want to include is the fact that the tour would be more entertaining in the Ottawa city on our second day if have had visited like the best spots of the city, but rather we just shopped around and left for the Boston city. The tour depends on our customers will. Anyways the jet boat was crazy fun including the Niagara Falls and I’m glad my kids get to see the falls from both American and Canadian side. It was good to visit those French communities there in the Montreal.
I didn't know that Canada has so much French history there in the Montreal and Quebec cities, though their hospitality and the food was remarkable including their bazaars as well. That was my first ever trip to Canada, and I learn and realized so much, including the fact that our travel guiding persons were so nice and they let us have the proper time to enjoy visiting the places like the Niagara Falls itself. Great service, great experience, and great hotel accommodations!
